Introduction to the Arthropoda
. . . the REAL rulers of the Earth. . .
B y nearly any measure, the most successful animals on the planet are the arthropods. They have conquered land, sea and air, and make up over three-fourths of all currently known living and fossil organisms, or over one million species in all. Since many arthropod species remain undocumented or undiscovered, especially in tropical rain forests, the true number of living arthropod species is probably in the tens of millions. One recent conservative estimate puts the number of arthropod species in tropical forests at 6 to 9 million species (Thomas, 1990). Arthropods range in distribution from the deep sea to mountain peaks, in size from the king crab with its 12-foot armspan to microscopic insects and crustaceans , and in taste from chocolate covered ants to crawfish jambalaya and lobster Newburg. Despite this unbelievable diversity, the basic body plan of arthropods is fairly constant. Arthropods have a stiff cuticle made largely of chitin and proteins, forming an exoskeleton that may or may not be further stiffened with calcium carbonate. They have segmented bodies and show various patterns of segment fusion (

This tree diagram shows the relationships between several groups of organisms. The root of the current tree connects the organisms featured in this tree to their containing group and the rest of the Tree of Life. The basal branching point in the tree represents the ancestor of the other groups in the tree. This ancestor diversified over time into several descendent subgroups, which are represented as internal nodes and terminal taxa to the right.

There are far more species of arthropods than species in all other phyla combined, and the number of undescribed species in the largest assemblage of arthropods, the insects, probably numbers in the tens of millions. Members of the phylum have been responsible for the most devastating plagues and famines mankind has known. Yet other species of arthropods are essential for our existence, directly or indirectly providing us with food, clothing, medicines, and protection from harmful organisms. The systematic relationships of arthropod groups is not fully understood, which is not surprising given the size and diversity of the phylum. Sources Hickman, C.P. and L. S. Roberts. 1994.

This page presents a brief systematic overview of the Arthropoda, from their origins to the present. Keywords: Arthropoda, arthropod, Ecdysozoa, Tactopoda, Onychophora, Euarthropoda, Tardigrada, Arachnomorpha, Trilobita, Chelicerata, Crustacea, Mandibulata, Atelocerata, Hexapoda, segmentation, ecdysis
Arthropods are bilaterally symmetrical segmented animals with paired and usually jointed appendages, on some or all of the body segments, with chitinous claws. The body is surrounded by a tough organic or organic-mineral cuticle, incorporating a -chitin, which functions as an exoskeleton. In order for the animals to grow, the exoskeleton must be moulted regularly. The mixocoel includes metanephridia and, except in tardigrades, an ostiate heart. Segments are added from a posterior growth zone during ontogeny. At least half of the described species of living animals are arthropods (mostly insects), but arthropods are less common as fossils. The most familiar group of fossil arthropods is undoubtedly the trilobites. Fossil groups have been incorporated into arthropod classification systems at least since the 18th century, but important new finds - especially of very early stem group organisms, such as those of the

Mantis shrimp, from Tomiyama et. al., 1970. The largest and most diverse group of animals known, and by many criteria the most successful, arthropods can be found in a bewildering array of body forms, lifestyles, and habitats. All Arthropods have jointed appendages and a hard exoskeleton. In the marine environment the dominant arthropod group is the crustaceans (compared to the terrestrial environment which is dominated by insects ). There are also many other groups of arthropods that can be abundant in certain environments. CLASSES OF ARTHROPODS

Unit: Arthropoda introduction 1 Introduction
The arthropods are by far the most successful phylum of animals, both in diversity of distribution and in numbers of species and individuals. They have adapted successfully to life in water, on land and in the air. About of all known animal species belong to the Arthropoda - about 800,000 species have been described, and recent estimates put the total number of species in the phylum at about 6 million. Arthropods are found in a greater variety of habitats than any other animal group; on top of mountains, at great depths in the ocean and in the icy wilderness of Antarctica. They can survive great extremes of temperature, toxicity, acidity and salinity. Now extinct, TRILOBITES represent the oldest known examples of arthropods. An extremely diverse phylum with many classes both large and small, there are several classifications of the phylum. You will find only an abbreviated version on the Taxonomy Table page which will be expanded in other relevant units (e.g. Crustacea This unit is therefore intended as an overview of the common features of arthropods which have allowed them to become so successful.

The Animal Kingdom : Joint-Legs ( Arthropoda
(Last modified: 21 July 1997)
Arthropoda , the jointed leg spineless creatures of the world, are among the most maligned of all animals. This rule is not universal, of course. Many people adore Butterflies of the Order Lepidoptera and the ancient Egyptians even worshipped the Scarab Beetle of Order Coleoptera but on the whole, when modern governments spend money on Arthropods it is to find a way of eradicating them. Never-the-less, the "bugs" of this phylum have served an important role in the history of this planet, whether as carriers of the most devastating plagues in human history or for enabling the parallel evolution of our beautiful flowering plants. This large group of bugs and crustacians numbers 500,000 strong by today's counts. Scientists believe that up to 10,000,000 Arthropod species are alive today.
Insects ( Class Insecta
The majority of Arthropoda 290,000 species are insects. This includes the moth and stinkbug, pictured here as well as ants, bees, beetles, butterflies, flies, grashoppers, wasps and a whole lot more.
Arachnids ( Class Arachnida
Arachnids are eight-legged creatures including spiders, scorpions, and ticks.

The arthropods constitute the most successful and diverse form of life on Earth, constituting millions of species in a diverse range of habitats, and varying in size from microscopic to quite large. The name "arthropod" comes from the Greek, arthros jointed, and podes , feet. Hence, jointed feet. All arthropods possess a jointed rigid exoskeleton, which both supports the musculature and protects the animal. The exoskeleton is formed by the cuticle, a protective layer composed mostly of chitin, long chained molecules of the sugar acetyl glucosamine, which when cross-linked form tough fibers embedded in a protein matrix As the animal grows it has to shed its exoskeleton at regular intervals, a process known as molting . During this time it is vulnerable to predators and disease, and also to desiccation if it is a terrestrial form like an insect or spider. Because the larger the animal the longer it takes for the new molt to harden, and hence the longer the time it is vulnerable, this process imposes limits on the size arthropods grow to. Another limit with terrestrial forms like insects is that breathing is through pores in the side of the body. Hence arthropods are mostly small, even microscopic, with very few growing to giant size. Science fiction giant ants and the rest are simply physiologically impossible (though that never stopped sci fi writers in the past).
